SMD produces models serving a range of capacities from 0.1 to 1000 pounds. Scales are equipped with a full Wheatstone bridge and are calibrated with our custom electronics to exhibit ±0.05% accuracy including nonlinearity, non-repeatability, and percentage-per-year drift. Their rugged construction is augmented by features such as splash resistance, RF immunity, overload protection, and unlimited color and material selection.
Offering high long-term zero point stability, low power consumption and hysteresis, and compact design, our low-profile SMD scales are currently used to determine a myriad of liquid level, flow rate and fluid measurement parameters. Applications served by these highly versatile scales include medical instrumentation, medical analyzing systems, force and displacement measurement, battery powered equipment and food dispensing equipment.
An example of a custom solution is the 5 Kg stainless steel scale we developed for a semiconductor manufacturer, to weigh critical gas cylinders in a gas cabinet. The application called for a chemically resistant stainless steel scale less than 1” tall. SMD designed a 0.75” tall solution, see BWR6097.
